Nice idea, but looks like postage stamp size prints. Maybe it could spawn a new trend in art?

If the quality of the photos is there and the paper is not considered too expensive, this could be a hit product.

Cool now I can take picture and... print tiny photos out... cool... if I was 8 again! Ill stick with my digital camera, photoshop cs2 and desktop printer.

Looks like an average price of 100 Yen per picture. Approximately 4 times the price of your print shop in the neighborhood.

pricy, I print all my photos for 7yen (8yen without discount) and some fools pay 25-30yen for a L size photo. God forbid the average Joe won't ever find this webpage Been using them for over a year and they rock. I'll tell you how and why they can print so cheap another day.
